<p>Greetings, all.  5m on the hamster wheel last night.  Today bi/tri/thigh/core/butt stuff is on tap, and although today should be a rest day for the legs, I'm thinking of getting just a few miles in, to make up for missing Tuesday's run.  I figure 3-4 more shouldn't hurt at this point. </p>

<p>I ran a bit over 5 last night.  It was 33 degrees and the stars were shining.  But I felt sluggish and slow.  Very disappointing.  So I decided to sleep in until 6 this morning.  I will run tonight after work - hopefully outside.  I did arm weights this morning.</p>

<p>Holy vertigo <strong>Amichel</strong>!!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>8.4 miles with 4x10 minute tempo pace.  Hit my paces perfectly:  8:46, 8:45, 8:48, 8:46.  And especially pleased because most of that was into a pretty stiff wind.</p>

<p>Morning/afternoon folks!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great job thus far folks!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>30 minutes of fast walking on the dreadmill last night. I give all of you who run on those things during the winter all the credit in the world. I hate it. Plus it changes my stride enough that I hit harder than normal on my heels and it just kills my disc in my neck. I hurt more after that 30 minutes than after I finished the HM in Houston.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Short bike ride tonight in preparation for the Tour De Cure ride in the morning. Havent been on the bike in a while, just want to make sure everything is in working order mechanicaly.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Will start back up with running on Monday.</p>

Rarely do I sit on the ball all day, usually a half a day.  And when I first started it was an hour or so at a time.   It's way fun to bounce on it while doing work  <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border-top-width:0px;border-right-width:0px;border-bottom-width:0px;border-left-width:0px;">  I'd highly recommend it!</p>

Dh blew up my ball this morning and it seems a little lower than what will be comfortable at my computer. I'm going to check into getting a slightly bigger one. But I def want to do this.</p>

I've got 22 road miles in the morning and then perhaps 9 - 10 trail miles on Sunday.  It's only 8 days until my trail 50K.  I was just looking at the course elevation and it's a hairy beast!  :0</p>

<p>That is a lot of laps <strong>Amy</strong>!  I'd go crazy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jeez, they just sent link to the Little Rock photos.  I was scowling in every one of them.  Oh and the finishers video they sent shows a visually impaired runner, being led by his guide, zipping by me and then me hobbling over the finish line.  Uggggggg!    (BTW, running a marathon when you can see is hard enough, but to run it without sight deserves big props!)</p>

I really miss sitting on a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60ch4zp_JYk" target="_blank">Fitness Orb</a>. I sat on one all day every day at job in Wisconsin, before we moved here. But apparently, this corporation does not approve or condone such sitting arrangements. :(<br>

Yikes!  That's some crazy good work.  The most I've done is 7 miles on our indoor track (it's 14 laps per mile) so I can relate. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>BTW, I did manage to get a solid 12 miles in yesterday in spite of the wind and the cold grey weather.  feeling kinda tired today. </p>

<p>Holy schnikies <strong>Tim</strong>, that's a lot of elevation gain and loss!!!!   How are you feeling about the race?  You'll have that under your belt a week before my 50K, I hope the tales you come back reporting are all good.  <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span><strong>Amy</strong> - how on earth did you keep track of the laps? </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Best snack ever - barley with a bit of almond butter & warmed up.  DELICIOUS!!!</p>

Yeah <strong>Tim</strong>, that doesn't look like fun.  I think you and <span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Maria</strong></span> both have more work cut out for your 50ks than I do for mine...</p>

I just looked at my pics.  They got a bunch of shot of me taking BobCam pictures of myself at the finish line.  And there's video of that too.  Pretty funny. </p>

<p>3 miles this morning.  I've run everyday so far this week and today I was feeling it.  Legs were a bit dead.  But I feel like I'm on such a good roll, don't want to stop just yet!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's supposed to be rainy, windy and mild tomorrow.  And mild again on sunday.  I'm so wearing shorts if that's true!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The crew will do Kellys Mountain on sunday followed by brunch.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I signed up for my free 4 month membership at the Y today.  I won it a couple of weeks ago at an auction.  Spun a wheel for $5, won the membership!  I can't wait to start trying some classes!</p>
